2 1 2 y x = - 2 y x = - How can we find the area between these two curves? We could split the area into several sections, use subtraction and figure it out, but there is an easier way.
2 1 2 y x = - 2 y x = - Consider a very thin vertical strip. The length of the strip is: 1 2 y y - or ( 29 ( 29 2 2 x x - - - Since the width of the strip is a very small change in x , we could call it dx .
